Make SQL Server Queries Go Faster

10900 Stonelake Blvd. Suite 225 - Microsoft Office
Austin, Texas 78759
Time: 18:00 - 20:30

Title: Making SQL Server Queries Go Faster
by: John Sterrett

Summary: Have you ever developed slowly running queries and wondered how to make your own SQL Server queries go faster? In this session you will learn some T-SQL performance tuning tips that can be applied on Monday back at the office. You will learn how to identify top offender queries, be able to benchmark queries, and apply proper indexes while avoiding common mistakes. Finally we will cover coding patterns that are developer friendly but are not SQL Server database engine friendly and show you how to rewrite them so they can run faster.
